Looking for a free data loading tool

Hello all,

 

   Was wondering if anyone out there knows of any free data loading tools (aside the standard SFDC data loader) that can replicate data and synching data, be able to schedule import/export jobs,  please let me know. Our organization exports and imports a very large amount of data on a quarterly basis, and we need a tool that can essentially automate this process. We tried IOD (Informatica on Demand) which was excellent, however since we are doing this just 4 times in the year, we could not justify the cost. I am curious to see if such a tool is out there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks

SCRSCR

In terms of a no cost solution to your issue you may want to look into the Ant based force.com migration tool that provides easy to use scripting capabilities.  Combining this with the SFDC Data Loader and a free scheduler (there are many available on the web for free) may get you the solution you seek.
